Stunning views

We made a journey from Arabba to Corvara around Sella Ronda and Passo Gardena was the last stop on our way. It was a sunny day and we had wonderful views onto the mountains all around.

Even on an overcast day in October, it was just breathtaking scenery. Leaves changing colors. Magestic peaks. HIke, bike, stroll, ski. Whatever - enjoy.

The Dolomites are definitely something else..stunning! Good road, not too difficult to travel. There are several small cafes and souvenir shops. But view is the killer…amazing. Must visit place.

Great views !
Oct 2019
We are staying in Barbiano, so Gardena Pass is just across the hill. Left early as we watched the traffic up and down the hill, it’s heavy. Great drive, some people think they are race car drivers and drive to fast and tailgate. So if ya want a leisurely drive better start early. The views are absolutely stunning!
Och, it’s a famous motorcycle route, they drive crazy, FYI!

Green!

We did this pass upon leaving Corvara - it’s one of my favourites in the area, love the great green views you get from this one. It can get busy with cars, buses, motorbikes and cyclists so maybe try getting up early if you can. There is some parking at the top of the pass before you start the descent.

We drive up from selva. A winding scenic drive through the gardens pass. Parked at the top and hiked route 2 to the very top. Amazing views all the way up and from the top. Screen underfoot at times you need good footwear. Takes a couple of hours

Stunning road and views
Jul 2019 • Friends
The Gardena pas sis one of my favourite motorbike roads jn the Dolomites. It never disappoints. Get to the top and your breath is taken away by the stunning views just sit down and enjoy the scenery.
A bit busy in the holiday seasons and you also have speed cameras on the way up.
Definitely worth a ride 👍

Beautiful!

Passo Gardena, starts at an elevation of 5000’ and finishes at about 7000’ with a total of 17 hairpins over the distance of 5.7 miles. The average grade is 6.4%, with the highest grade being 12%.

We crossed over Passo Gardena as we were leaving the Dolomites on our way from Cortina d’Ampezzo to Innsbruck, passing through the, the endearing villages San Cassiano, and La Villa along the way. These villages are all about skiing and winter sports and I can only imagine what they must be like in the winter. We did not see any huge ski resort complexes like you see in Colorado. Instead, these towns are filled with chalets and are just beautiful. There are several options for food at the pass. Restrooms are available to paying customers only.

One thing that was true wherever we drove in the Dolomites in early June: we were constantly surrounded by motorcyclists and bicyclist, sometimes a dozen or more at a time. They were rarely out of sight and we had to remain on the alert at all times, especially of the motorcycles who would pass 3-4 at a time seemingly at will without regard to road or traffic conditions.

The chapel at the Passo Gardena (inaugurated 2004) is devoted to Saint Maurice, the patron of the Italian “Alpini”. It is very picturesque and just a short walk up from the main road.

Scenic drive beauty
Jun 2019 • Family
Gardena Pass is the most scenic drive in Dolomites. 360 degree view is all nature beauty at its best. The drive isn't so difficult and along the way, so many photo spots we can take. We stopped in so many spots just to enjoy the mountain view surrounding the pass. One of must do activity in Dolomites area.

Great place to start a walk
Jul 2019 • Couples
We caught the bus from Selva (make sure you get the right one as two buses with same number- 471 - arrive within about 5 mins of each other and go to DIFFERENT places). We had a coffee in the Rifugio Alpini before heading down to the start of FP 654. This was an easy path to start passing through meadows and pasture with stations of the cross tosee along the way. We stopped at a seat for a snack before continuing - just after the seat the path had been diverted and became quite steep , before rejoining the original path (now 653)that was now much wider and because of loose stones very slippy. However we got down safely if a little slowly.
An alternate is to ascend the 654 from behind the souvenir shop past the small chapel until it joins the 12A and then turn left to follow this path down past the Panorama hut, or turn right to the top of the Dantercepies cable car. In fact there is a pleasent short walk down from here to the Gardena Pass and back up as just suggested if you had come from Selva via the cable car.
